Graphic design posters for the upcoming season
CBC News has launched a graphic design competition for graphic designers to help make their work look better and more cohesive.
The Calgary Flames are one of the teams participating in the contest, which runs from April 25 to June 1.
“It’s been a long time coming,” said Tim Sowers, Calgary Flames’ head of design.
“Our team has been doing this for a long while.
But it’s been very rewarding.
The more you put in, the more you learn.”
The Calgary Fire Department’s poster designs have been designed to make the team look good, he said.
“We were all in this together and we want to show that we’re the best.”
The Flames won the 2014-15 season and have had two of their three playoff wins in recent years.
They’ve also won five straight Stanley Cups.
“That’s something that has to be recognized,” Sowers said.
“The Flames have won a lot of championships and the Flames are still in it.
It’s just a matter of how we look together.”
The contest is open to Calgary residents and is open for a maximum of four weeks.
Sowers said the Flames’ team crest will be used in the designs.
“They really wanted to make sure that the Calgary Flames logo was there,” he said, adding that the logo will be in full color, along with the words: Calgary Flames.
Sower said the theme is to “give a visual expression of who you are, what you represent and what you do.”
Sowers is a Flames fan who works at the company he created for the Flames, which was named Flames.
He said the Calgary team is not a brand and has not been for decades.
Sows said he hopes the Flames logo will resonate with people across the city.
“The more you are recognized by others, the better you get at it,” he added.
Sowens said the team is looking to get the logo design completed by June 1 and will use it in the next year’s poster design.
He said he doesn’t know how many Flames players the team will use in the design.
The Flames are also looking to add more players to their roster in the future.
“Hopefully we can get something happening soon,” he joked.
Says Sowers the Flames will probably start using a different logo in the upcoming year.
The team has won a number of titles in the past, but it’s not a sure thing.
“There are so many teams around the league that are winning championships, they’re just not as well known as the Flames,” Sower said.SOWENS: ‘I think we have the talent, but we need to put our best foot forward’
